Want to increase volume on speakers

I enjoy watching YouTube as well as other audio on Real Player etc. Even though I have increased and adjusted the settings I do not get good volume on the speakers and have to strain to hear the sound. I would like to have nice loud clear sound output. Many thanks for specific instructions/help!!

You may have already reached the limits if you have adjusted the settings through Control Panel (?). Are these external speakers you are listening through or is it the internal speaker?
In Control Panel (reached from the Start button, bottom left), choose Sounds and Audio Devices. The Volume tab is the first one. Make sure the Device volume slider bar is all the way to the right. Next,choose Advanced and make sure all those slider bars are up to the top with no Mute boxes checked. Finally, at the bottom choose Speaker Volume and make sure those slider bars are all the way to High.
If none of these help and you're using external speakers, it is time to buy a new set. If you only have an internal speaker you're listening with, keep in mind that they aren't powerful enough to give you the kind of volume needed to listen to some things on the web.
Let me know if you have any further questions. Please rate my answer.

No sound on YouTube videosIf you don't hear sound on YouTube videos, please try the following steps:
  1. Adjust the volume control on your computer and speakers.
  2. Adjust the volume control located in the lower left corner of the YouTube Video Player.
  3. Restart your internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
  4. Ensure that the volume is turned up on other video players, such as Quicktime, Real Player, or Windows Media player, as this might affect the video player sound.
If you still have no sound after trying the steps above, you may want to try the steps below:
  1. Install the latest version of Adobe Flash (necessary for streaming YouTube videos) after removing any old versions you've installed. Learn how to install the most recent version of Adobe Flash player.
  2. Allow third-party Flash content on your computer by visiting the Adobe Flash Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. Once this is complete, close all browser windows and try re-playing the Live Event.
    Please be advised that this action stores a Flash cookie on your computer. Flash enables this by default upon install.
  3. Check your Antivirus and Firewall software to see if you're blocking third-party Flash content.

While I'm watching a video, I used to see a statement on the top right, where it says "down load this video", and I don't see this statement any more, can this be fixed?


The "DOWNLOAD THIS VIDEO" BUTTON is an add-on of Real Player SP to download streaming videos from youtube etc. To fix this you may download Real Player SP re-install it with downloading option.
OR
as an alternative you can use Youtube down loader
Download Youtube Downloader for FREE
Install this program and Enjoy You Tube Downloads. (All you have to do is copy and paste the URL of the required video into YouTube Downloader as indicated below)

Am watching you tube videos sound not working what to do


To make sure that you hear sound while watching videos, please try the following:
  • Adjust the volume control on your computer and speakers.
  • Adjust the volume control located in the lower right corner of the YouTube Video Player.
  • Ensure that the volume is up on other video players, such as Quicktime, Real Player, or Windows Media player, as this might affect the video player sound.
  • Try shutting down your computer and then restarting it again.
  • Videos on YouTube are streamed through an Adobe Flash player. For the best viewing experience, we suggest you install the latest version of Adobe Flash after removing any old versions you've installed

If you can't hear sound within videos embedded on other websites or blogs, your computer may be blocking third-party Flash content. To correct this, follow the steps below:

Visit:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html

  1. The Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager should display.
  2. Check the box labeled: "Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer."
  3. To ensure the check sticks please click one of the tabs at the top of that box and then click back to the (Global Storage Settings Panel). The box should still be checked.
  4. Once this is complete, close all browser windows and try playing an embedded video.
Please be advised that this action stores a Flash cookie on your computer. Flash enables this by default upon install.

If this step doesn't help, please check your Antivirus and Firewall software to see if you're blocking third party Flash content.

Volume too low


Chances are there a limit on the volume to keep it from going to loud. If the MP3 has a screen, use it to navigate to a menu and go into it's sound settings. From there, you should be able to raise the max volume to the REAL max.

Philips 27PS55S/121 sound level decreases


Yes, the dynamic range on DVD's is enough to cause the high and low passages to be somewhat annoying but, sounds more like a movie theater. This kind of dynamic range showed up first on Beta HiFi and VHS HiFi VCR's because of thier range as well. If there is a feature in your audio menus on your TV such as "audio expansion, SRS, Wide mode, etc." turn it off and let the audio be processed without expansion of any kind as that will amplify your dynamic range alot more. The lock up issue could be something Philips is aware about and if under warranty contact them. Otherwise not much you can do except manke sure the voltage going to the TV is failry stable between 110 volts and 120 volts. Sometimes dramatic drops and or increases can cause lock up or confusion to the microprocessor in the TV.

Loudness Equalization : on

Equalizer: Choose one (Jazz seems to be loudest setting but sounds of hallway effect so I use powerful for clarity.)

This has more than doubled the level of volume on my acer 5570.
